I hit the road a fair amount and one of the benefits of a good pair of boots is the simplicity they provide when traveling. Long gone are the days of half my suitcase being filled with multiple pairs of shoes & boots. I pack my running shoes and wear the one pair of boots that’s going to be perfect for whatever the trip requires.
Four years ago I was talking to a Bay Area CMO named Nick about joining HELM as a board member and advisor. As someone who’s constantly in and out of meetings in SF, on the road constantly, and straight into kids activities or Warriror’s games in the evenings, I knew that this would be a huge advantage for him. Last week Nick told me that now when he travels, he starts with one pair of boots and then plans his outfits for the trip based on that one pair.
My Creative Look does a great job showing how you can pair different outfits with the same boot or how to take everyday items in your closet and put them together.
Here’s How I’ve Approached My Travel Lately.
Annual ski trip with the boys - I wore The Lou as they are super comfortable after being on the slopes all day, perfect for stopping through the snow and nice enough for Apres skiing and dinners.
Later this month I’m headed to Louisville for meetings with The Zind as the trip is going to require something besides jeans and a t-shirt.
